View Full Version : =A= Band

06-10-2003, 09:32 PM
Donnie and I were discussing how we are going to get a few skill points in the entertainer skill tree and get a few musician skill points. Is anyone else getting a few skill points in the Musician Specialty and starting a little =A= band?

06-10-2003, 10:48 PM
Since we can master 3.5 Professions. I'll donate that .5 to the muscian part of entertainer.

06-10-2003, 10:54 PM
Sweet... we got ourselves a little band goin. I was thinking we could play at Gnarly Gnorts every friday night or something.

Jatari Bazrak
06-10-2003, 11:45 PM
No there isn't but that can't stop a dancer from typing in the words and us playing music.

06-10-2003, 11:46 PM
Good point :) . We need a female twi'lek to be our dancer. :D

06-11-2003, 12:49 PM

Fiba'ona Takalyyn

Jatari Bazrak
06-13-2003, 10:10 PM

06-13-2003, 10:33 PM

06-14-2003, 12:57 AM

06-14-2003, 03:05 AM

Jatari Bazrak
06-14-2003, 03:32 PM

And Heerreee's the Chocolate Covered Gnorts!

Jan Gaarni
06-14-2003, 05:31 PM
There are just a couple of things wrong about that.

First, you're not gnorts.
Secondly, we already, if we can get the permission that is, have a candy named that.
The confussion would be enormous. :D

06-14-2003, 08:15 PM
yes jan is right lets jsut leave the gnorts alone for this one.

Jatari Bazrak
06-14-2003, 08:20 PM
alright but I think that one is the best so far.

Jatari Bazrak
06-17-2003, 10:56 PM
well I'll be playing the red ball jet keyboard thats what it's called...
and if anybodys interested one of you guys should play the kloo horn, or the growdi.
here are the links...
growdi (http://www.starwars.com/databank/character/rappertunie/index.html)
and the kloo horn (http://www.starwars.com/databank/organization/modalnodes/eu.html)

06-17-2003, 11:40 PM
the kloo horn is like a starwars clarinett isnt it?

Jatari Bazrak
06-18-2003, 01:02 PM
yeah it's a mix between the clarinet and the sax.

06-18-2003, 06:02 PM
If its in the game I'll play it:D

Jatari Bazrak
06-18-2003, 11:09 PM
dont worry Vessen it is in game. I've seen a pic with it.

06-19-2003, 12:08 AM
Awesome. That's a cool instrument.

06-19-2003, 02:19 AM
I was hoping to start up a band too. I want to play any instrument that is like a guitar, since I play it IRL.

Dathan Surehand
06-19-2003, 11:46 AM
Hey Patman,

Did you notice in the new stories by holocron someone said they started playing with 15 other band menbers.

You may have to have an "Orchestra" and not a band.......:D

Donnie Darko
06-19-2003, 03:01 PM
Hey all ye band members, sorry it has taken so long for me to post on this thread, I just got my new cable modem *twiddles fingers* muah haha! I'm really liking how this is turning out...in RL I have been in bands since I was 12, ranging from hardcore to punk to sceamo to emo so being in a band in SWG is something I have been dreaming about so I thank you all for your ideas and wanting to be a part of the band. Now! - There are 4 instruments in the game, and seeing how they are present in the movies this won't be in violation of the NDA...at least I don't think, anyways it's probably getting lifted today, so BAH!!! There is the kloo horn, its like the sax clarinet comboniation, kind of what Kenny G uses, the slitherhorn which is like a barisax looking horn, the mandoviol which is the closest thing to a string instrument (probably what I will play), and last but never least is the nalargon which is that huge piano thing that can be played by two, yes TWO, people at once. Now this information came to my attention a looooong time ago (in a galaxy far far away) so there might be new instruments, possibly, hopefully. As for our band name I think it should be more serious but I don't have any clue on what to name it as of yet. As for our style, we can't choose, sorry, but we do get an arrangement of Starwars theme songs that we can play. Again this info is old so things might have changed. So yes, Fiba'ona will be on the mandoviol. I think it would be great to get some dancers as well, two at least.

Jatari Bazrak
06-19-2003, 04:51 PM
Wow didn't know you knew so much Donnie...:rolleyes:
Well anyway here's what we have.and I think there will be more like a gutair thing be cause if you look at the band in the new movie you'll se that the man to the right looks like he's playing the gutair.

Name: N/A

Vessen (Kloo horn)
Jatari (Nalargon)
and we'll take dancers now and if you guys want more horn instrument players then let's get some more.

On waiting list:
The mastero

06-19-2003, 06:50 PM
Count my wookie Entertainer in. Give's a whole new meaning to the pseudo-nickname "Shaggy." :)

I can be lead vocals...muwhaha.

06-19-2003, 11:49 PM
I want to play a slitherhorn.

EDIT: I found a place with all the instruments. Just check around. http://www.swgcenter.com/info/SkillTree.asp?ID=23&CID=

Jatari Bazrak

Donnie Darko
06-20-2003, 06:20 PM
Hey band members. After the NDA has been lifted a lot of things have come to my attention, it turns out I won't have enough skill points to become a musician so I can no longer be a part of the band, but trust me, whenever there is a show at the Gnarly Gnort I will always be in the crowd. Again, I am very sorry for my dismemberment of the Associates Rag-Time Band, I am sure you guys are going to kick ass!

06-21-2003, 02:27 AM
I will happily sing a song to all those who want one...I love thee! :)

Jatari Bazrak
06-21-2003, 03:01 AM
oookay.:rolleyes: well then here we go again.
if patman wants to lead now he can since he and donnie started this, but if he doesn't I can. Now, here's what we have so far...

Name: N/A
Possiblities:the Craken coreillaian's.:D
Patman(do you and swediot want to play the narlagon?)
Vessen(kloo horn)
Jatari (narlagon/chidinkalu horn)
Swediot(well do you want to?)
TheMaestro(dancer/lead singer.)

now here's a list of every instrument:
kloo horn
the banfill
chidinkalu horn
omni box

Donnie Darko
06-21-2003, 01:08 PM
You forgot the Traz, Fizz, and Fanfar. :D

Jatari Bazrak
06-21-2003, 03:07 PM
right thank you.:p

06-22-2003, 04:54 PM
Before I go for the musician skills, I'm going for my main profession, Image Designer, so I'm joining the band a little later.

06-22-2003, 07:53 PM
Sorry guys but cross me off the list, I have decided to use the extra points on two branches in the scout tree...

Jatari Bazrak
06-22-2003, 10:50 PM
k sorry to here that Vessen. well I think the band will be formed later after we have our main proffession's out of the way.:D

06-22-2003, 11:29 PM
Count me in the band I am putting a bunch of my skill points into that profession, Maybe not right away but Its in my plan

06-23-2003, 12:00 AM
Well I guess for now the =A= band should just wait. Later on in the game we will figure it out.

06-23-2003, 03:02 AM
Yup. I can't wait to here you guys:D :)

06-23-2003, 12:41 PM
I am picking my instrument in the game since I know almost nothing about the star wars instruments except that they make noise...

Jatari Bazrak
06-25-2003, 02:42 AM
So there is one mor thing we need to discuss Patman do you want to be leader of the Band or should I?

06-28-2003, 06:34 AM
How about '=A= Band'? It's a double entendre, and it is litteraly true. :r2d2:

06-28-2003, 03:13 PM
Oo, I just thought of a name. "Saaranoid"

Jatari Bazrak
06-29-2003, 07:33 PM
How about '=A= Band'? It's a double entendre, and it is litteraly true.
Yes we might just be the '=A= band' so we'll get a few good names then we choose.;) and I am proud to anounce that Patman is the leader of our band and I'm co. Leader.
